This dataset contains data collected in the Marine Station of Kristineberg (Sweden), with samples taken in Bökevik Bay, Fiskebäckskil, Sweden. The horizontal and vertical sediment transport of bare sediment and sediment with Zostera marina was measured with increasing waves conditios in a wave flume (total of 56 minutes). Horizontal transport (bed load) was quantified as grams of sediment moved out of the test section in the flume bottom after the 56 minutes of wave exposure. Vertical transport (resuspension) was measured as turbidity and light attenuation. Sediment transport was correlated to vegetation and sediment properties.
